I thought I’d share with you today my homemade cell phone case. My phone is probably the most basic you can get. I don’t text and don’t use it for pictures. All I really need it to do is make a phone call. But that doesn’t mean it has to look basic and boring. With a little mod podge and some cool printed tissue, I turned my phone from drab to fab.All you need is the following: a boring phone case, or the back of your phone (which is what I did), Your favorite printed tissue , Mod Podge, a small paint brush to apply the mod podge, Exacto Knife, Scissors, andClear acrylic spray
For my phone case I used 135-8425 Dapper winds Tissue which can be found in our Everyday 2012 Catalog on page 31. First thing I did was remove my phone case and cleaned it with an alcohol wipe so that it was clean. I cut a piece of tissue that was big enough to cover the case, If there is excess, it can be trimmed off later. Next I covered the case with a layer of mod podge and carefully placed the tissue on top, making sure to smooth out any air bubbles. Make sure that the case completely dries before putting another layer of mod podge, you wouldn’t want your tissue to rip. After the Mod podge was dry from the first application, I covered the tissue with a layer of mod podge. I did about 3-4 layers of mod podge, making sure to let it dry in between applications. After the case was completely dry, ( I waited until the next day) I made sure to cut out all the holes that were in my case for the camera and the little vents. I used an exacto to get in the small places and trimmed off the excess around the edges. The last thing I did was spray the decorated case with a coating of clear acrylic spray so that it would be protected if it got wet. I now have a one of a kind phone case that looks pretty cool, and to top it off, its from a tissue I designed myself.
